We are excited to announce that Coast 2 Coast 2024 is a GO!

From 1 June to 13 July 2024, myself, Zoë Prinsloo and our team at Save a Fishie NPC, will once again embark on our epic campaign to clean beaches all along our South African coastline!


“Save a Fishie was founded by Zoë Prinsloo, a 21-year-old environmental activist from Cape Town when she was just 16 years old! Zoë has been cleaning beaches since the age of 10 and has to date cleaned over 270 beaches and collected over 20 tons of litter in the process. With the aid of her team, Zoë recently partnered with John Dory’s and set a World Record for the longest beach clean-up, which lasted 27 hours! She was selected to go to New York in 2019 to attend the United Nations Youth Climate Summit and in 2022 was announced as one of the Top 100 African Youth Conservation Leaders. She has also been recognised by the Mayor of Cape Town, Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis, receiving the Mayor’s Medal Civic Award for Conservation in December 2023. She has also just returned from representing South Africa at the Helen Storrow Seminar in Switzerland! She has been published in countless newspaper, magazine and online articles as well as appearing on TV and Radio. Simply Google Save a Fishie or Zoë Prinsloo to learn more about this incredible young lady and her inspiring organisation.”

Through working with community schools and organisations we aim to impart a shared ownership and awareness around the effects of plastic pollution on our ocean and personal health supported by our various educational partners.  In support of our environmental message, we will also be collecting citizen science based data around the quantity and variety of plastics we collect, which will be made available to the public on our website to download.


We will once again be travelling up the West Coast from Cape Town to Port Nolloth, crossing the country via the Hennops and Jukskei Rivers and then down the East Coast from Richard’s Bay back to Cape Town. Last year we focused on trying to clean as many beaches as possible: 111 in 71 days! In so doing, we were also able to see WHERE help is needed. WHICH beaches were hardest hit by washouts, by irresponsible beach goers, by illegal public drinking or simply by neglect. This year, using the insight we gained in 2023, we will focus on those areas we now know need our help and need a good clean! We will do longer and more focused clean-ups working more with local groups and local schools. Raising more awareness and doing more education.


We will again be documenting our journey across our socials: “Environment. Education. Entertainment.” for our 13 000+ followers and on our website (https://saveafishie.co.za/blog/). We will also have a live tracking meter showing the public our kilometres travelled, kilograms of litter collected, number of nurdles picked up and more!



If you would like to make a financial contribution you can do so directly via EFT (Save a Fishie NPC, First National Bank,
Acc # 630 459 46605, Branch code: 200-410) or via our Back-a-Buddy account (link: https://www.backabuddy.co.za/save-a-fishie)


As a corporate or business owner there are various ways to be involved. You can “purchase” a beach clean-up exclusively for your brand to clean at a cost, or you could take a package deal for multiple clean-ups along the way. You could be a prime sponsor, a fuel sponsor, or you could be our vehicle sponsor or even sponsor our branded kit!

We will be cleaning all along the East, West and South Coast providing maximum exposure of your brand around our country’s coastline. Beach sponsors, for example, can provide us with a shark fin feather to put up at their sponsored beach clean-ups and those clean-ups will be known as YOUR clean-up with YOUR branding. Being a sponsor includes photos, Facebook and Instagram posts and your company will be tagged in them all. If there are members of your staff or of your customers close to where your beach clean-ups will be held, they are encouraged to join. All sponsors may request access to a shared folder of images taken during the trip for your own marketing applications.


As part of our key elements of “Environment. Education. Entertainment.”, we are looking for amazing PLACES TO STAY and THINGS TO DO to share with our supporters! To showcase what our beautiful country all has to offer in the way of exciting and fun-filled experiences, gorgeous views, delicious food and just showing off South Africa and all she has to offer! We would love to add YOU as one of the South African Dream Destinations along our route! (If you are able to sponsor our team an OVERNIGHT ACCOMMODATION, a LUNCH, a DINNER or an EXPERIENCE please note we are 2 adults and 1 child – 15 years old.)

To discuss how YOU can be a sponsor, email us to discuss the various options and packages we have available! We are also very open to ideas from you as to how YOU feel you can best help us. So please talk to us and let’s make it work.
